Flight of the Conchords released a brand-new single over the weekend.
But “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)” isn’t a typically funny song from the duo of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement. No. It’s their very own “We Are The World” gone “We Are New Zealand” effort, as FOTC corralled New Zealand’s pop and hip-hop stars together to sing this ditty — inspired by and produced for the island nation’s children.
Guest singers on “Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)” include Dave Dobbyn, Brooke Fraser, Boh Runga, Sam Scott, Luke Buda, Savage, Young Sid, Tyree, Deach, PNC, Zowie, Ruby Frost, Kids of 88, Rikki Morris, Moana Maniapoto, Nathan King, Maitereya, Victoria Girling-Butcher, Elizabeth Marvelly, Peter Urlich and Cherie Mathieson.
Bret and Jemaine crafted the lyrics after talking to New Zealand children. You can watch their conversations in this clip which aired during the weekend’s fund-raising efforts for Cure Kids NZ — the song and music video kicks in after the five-minute mark. Roll the whole thing, though, would you please?
If you’d like to hear the song whilst reading the lyrics, though, roll this version:
